‘Decoration has always had its own agenda, the sincere and unabashed offering of pleasure and solace.’
Print stories inspired by Pattern & Decoration, the 1970s avant-garde movement, form a key part of our new collection.
These prints – Liana, Phlox and Parish – fuse elements to create a fantastical and unexpected effect, blurring the line between art and craft.
In the Liana print, hand-painted rainbow daylilies morph into moiré zebra-print markings and tessellating dahlias – creating a kaleidoscopic illusion with colour and pattern.
The three silk-chiffon dresses incorporating the Liana print each offer a different aesthetic for dreamy summer evenings. With the choice of long, flowing sleeves; delicate straps or a draped one-shoulder cut, they’re united by a billowing lightness.
The Phlox print, another hand-painted artwork, was inspired by the New Decorativeness movement of the Seventies. Bands of hand-painted fantasy flowers and trompe l’oeil elements repeat across the Phlox dress to kaleidoscopic effect, making it the ideal companion for carefree spring and summer outings.
With a recycled polyester twill fabrication, our Halterneck and Mini Dress – a reworking of SS21’s Mia Print Shirt Dress – are perfect for hazy days in the sun.
Our Parish print also draws inspiration from the New Decorativeness movement, features graphic stripes, geometric chevrons and artistic interpretations of lace trim and ribbon work. The three dresses in the Parish story come in screen-printed cotton voile for couldn’t-be-easier summer style.
Injecting energy into your hot-weather wardrobe, our SS21 print offering is bold and brave – reflecting this summer’s spirited energy after the past years of rules and regulations.
